Cybersecurity in Smart Utilities
There are increasing efforts globally to upgrade electrical and water grids around the world with new capabilities—notably with network communications, remote and automated management of elements in the field, and new utility management functionalities. However, the introduction of smart technologies, such as network communications, remote and automated management of elements in the field, and new utility management functionalities, means increased dependence on ICTs and connectivity, which introduces new risks. These tools can expand the number of threat vectors, rendering smart utilities vulnerable to cyberattacks. Maintaining resilient electrical power generation and transmission as well as water distribution and treatment are key to protecting the utility infrastructure.Continue
Reports & Data
Due to their very high population concentrations, cities are vulnerable to unpredictable disasters and catastrophes like earthquakes, tsunamis, volcano eruptions, flooding, food shortages, wildfires, hurricanes and typhoons, terrorist attacks, civil unrest, cyberattacks, war, diseases and epidemics, nuclear or chemical contamination, extreme air pollution, etc. The impact of these events on cities is two-fold:
For city governments, smart parking represents a direct, short term revenue generating opportunity. It helps generate revenues from valuable parking space which is not monetized. In fact, it is one of a very small number of smart city applications which generates revenue, next to advertising on kiosks and other types of digital signage. Together with smart street lights and smart bins, this represents the “holy trinity” of current smart city applications.
